Course content

Our online MSc in Information Technology will develop your theoretical knowledge of Computer Science and your problem-solving and analytical skills, while enabling you to achieve the ultimate qualification for the IT professional.

Programme outline: The programme structure is extremely flexible, enabling you to personalise your MSc through a wide range of electives, ranging from Programming the Internet to Artificial Intelligence, from Project Management to e-Commerce.

The programme has four core modules. Once these are completed, students complete four electives, enabling them to study as broadly or as specifically as they like, followed by a dissertation. Each module lasts eight weeks and it is possible to take a break of three weeks between modules, if work or other commitments demand it. By taking one module at a time, you can explore a specific subject in depth without distractions.
